some impact. it's a little bit like joe biden saying, they want to put you back in chains. it's a reminder of the depth of dishonesty, the appeals to racism, the factual false hoods that are at the heart of the modern left. what then senator obama said was factually false. new orleans got far more money than new york tea and a great deal of mon that he was not matched by the stafford act. the process of the federal government taking care of the people of new orleans, in fact, was far larger because of the problem was much larger. huan entire city that was a disaster, as opposed to the immediate crisis of 9/11 and the world trade center. but factual inaccuracies are at the heart of the modern to relye facts, they will lose every time. so they just routinely engage in demagoguery, which the vice-president did today, talking about the middle class. all of this is the same stuff, a consistent pattern of fundamental dishonesty and appeals to race nways that the press ought to be making totally discredited. >> greta: i have a slightly different view of it. i think if this were the y
in charlotte, north carolina, wolf, biden said how can the romney campaign justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried -- in his words, buried, the last four years. paul ryan at a campaign event in iowa just a few moments ago seized on those comments and said vice president biden said that the middle class has been buried. we agree. he goes onto say that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states, wolf. i have a strg sense this will be brought up at tomorrow night's debate, wolf. >> we'll have a lot more on what joe biden has just said and the very tough reaction coming in from the romney campaign. gloria borger is standing by on that front. both of these campaigns are bringing major surrogates to denver to appear in the so-called spin room after the debate tomorrow night. what are you learning about the romney campaign's people who are coming in? >> reporter: wolf, it's probably no surprise rob portman, mitt romney's chief sparring partner playing barack obama in the debate, he'll be in the spin room. but we've also learned
? vice president joe biden putting his foot squarely in his mouth again. we will play the tape. and the "a-team" with so much more. all here next. and here they come. >> this is deadly earnest. how they can justify raising taxes to the middle class that have been buried in the past four years. ashley: joining me now, "lou dobbs tonight" 18. thank you so much for being here. let me begin with you. mitt romney so quick to jump on this, the vice president saying we have a class. for the past four years. buried with debt, high unemployment, falling income, you name it. what is it with joe biden, should he just keep his mouth shut? >> i want joe biden to keep talking. he accidentally goes into this truth telling, and i think it is great because we can rely on joe biden. under the heel of the obama economy for four years. we are suffering, joe biden knows this and he forgot to not say it. i don't know if all the main street media will report it but we should not slam romney for jumping on it, that is what the vicvice president said. as the one that is what you call a ready-made gift.
biden speaking to voters on the second day of his swing through the battle ground state. let's listen in. >> benefits they get now. now wait a minute now. after they were told that, this goes to credibility. after they were told that, what did they do? they still introduced it in the house. and every republican but a few voted for it but for the democratic senate that would it passed and mitt romney said at the time were he president and this passed he would sign it into law. sign into law the requirement y'all come up with $6,400 a year more for the same benefits. and now they say to us, oh, no, no, no. joe, we don't have that plan anymore. well, guess what? they got a message to the american people. they said we got a new plan. new plan. that's going to work better and save medicare. that plan, though, a harvard study comes out and says, that new plan still a voucher, would cost somebody 55 years old right now by the time they get on it $60,000 a year more over the life of medicare. ladies and gentlemen, the reason i bother to tell you this is, the reason i bother to tell you this is,
when they're seniors. and i don't know. >> all right, everyone. listening to joe biden with the talking points there. he first went after representative paul ryan the gop vice-presidential candidate and his budget proposals. that said he's also going after medicare. given the demographic makeup of the sunshine state, which has a large already older population, it becomes no surprise that the latest polls show the president with a lead in the sunshine state. now at the same time paul ryan is campaigning himself in new hampshire today. the republican vice-presidential nominee met with voters in the city of derry just a short time ago. >> all these promises were made in the idea of hope and change. and people -- it sounded pretty good. but when the rhetoric went aside and the time to act occurred, the ideas are the old ideas that have failed time and again. >> as for mitt romney, he spent some time in pennsylvania on friday. and despite trailing the president as much as ten points in some polls, governor romney made this bold prediction. >> it is an honor to be here with you and to be here
of the jewish-american vote in places like florida where vice president joe biden defted obama ease relationship with israel. >> i'm not going to talk about israel today. but i want to say one thing. i just want to tell you how proud i am, how proud i am to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with a guy who has done more for israel's physical security than any president of the eight i've served with. >> reporter: switching gears to court the state's senior citizens, biden said romney's plan to lower taxes would force the nation's elderly to pick up the tab. >> their plan they have for social security, the one they have now, would raise taxes on your social security. >> reporter: romney, who has accused the president of misleading the public on the subject of taxes repeated his pledge on the issue. >> i will not raise taxes on middle income americans. >> reporter: less than one week from his debate withhe president, romney is trying to expand the election map boldly predicting twice during his visit to pennsylvia that he can win here. >> you know, i've got l secret here. and that is that obama campaign t
states. vice president biden told a crowd in charlotte, north carolina that mitt romney would raise taxes on most americans to fund tax cuts for the wealthy. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class has been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts? look, folks, we've seen this movie before. massive tax cuts for the wealthy. eliminating restrictions on wall street. let the banks write their own rules. we know where it ends. it ends in a catastrophe of the middle class and the great recession of 2008. folks, we cannot go back to that. >> woodruff: the republican national committee and the romney campaign seized on biden's remark about the middle class. they called it a "stunning admission" that the president's policies have been bad for the economy and the middle class. but biden-- at his next stop, in asheville, north carolina-- said what has buried the middle class is the result of policies that romney and ryan are supporting. in clinton, iowa, vice presidential nominee paul ryan said a romney administration
netanyahu face to face and today vice president biden addressed that, right? >> that's right, shep. vice president biden many times has gotten into trouble for veering off message and saying something maybe the white house didn't want him to say. today was a case where he stood up for the president. he was at an event where he is supposed to be talking about medicare down in florida with senior citizens. he took a moment out to say wait a second, stop these attacks on the president over israel. take a listen. >> i want to tell you how proud i am. how proud i am to stand shoulder to shoulder with a guy who has done more for israel's physical security than any president. >> top white house officials insists during this call with the prime minister today president obama made clear that these two leaders are on the same page and they have the same goal, which is to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. now, how they do that whether it's through military action, whether it's through diplomacy, that's still a little bit shaky, they insist the goal is still the same, shep. >> shepard: what
buried over the past four years, but we need a vibrant middle class. you know, joe biden was right, but we have to have a vibrant middle class, and that's what mitt romney has the prescription and knows how to do. >> all right. going to have to leave it there, barbara, thank you for joining us. appreciate it. >>> remember this moment? >> in ohio. 150,000 jobs, and in the great state of michigan, 211,000 good-paying -- >> of course, that's jennifer granholm, former michigan governor rocking the crowd at the democratic national convention. she is rocking it again and is going to talk about how she thinks tonight's debate is going to pan out. we'll talk to her live this hour. also, some republican sources are dredging up video they say is exclusive of president obama speaking to ministers five years ago. praising his pastor at the time. our local political unit found it's neither exclusive nor new. we'll see what all the fuss is about. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] its lightweight construction makes it nimble... ♪ its road gripping performance makes it a cadillac. introducing the all-n
and there. >>> an amazing story. want to go to vice president joe biden he's exchange in charlotte, north carolina. 15 electoral votes up for grade. >> they put two wars on a credit card. refusing to pay for them. i introduced the legislation to pay for the war. number two they added a new prescription drug entitlement that they didn't pay for. and then they added a $1 trillion tax cut for the very wealthy on top of that. now, they -- those are the facts. the end result of all that was by the time we were elected they had in eight years doubled the national debt, that clock, doubled it and in addition to that they had the slowest job, private job growth since world war ii under this policy. and by the time the president sat down behind that famous desk the resolute in noble office within a week of sitting down our economists told us mr. president you're going to have to deal with a $1 trillion debt this year because there's nothing you can do about it. the budget was passed back october. and so ladies and gentlemen so much for their credibility on the debt, but what did it produce for us?
president biden condemned mitt rochl any for are you saying we should be readied to go to war? yes, we should be ready to go to war with iran and if we're ready to go to war with iran and iran knows it, we won't have to go to war with iran. >> and general clark, welcome back. he also writes that president obama has called the concerns over iran noise, quote/unquote, and that secretary of defense leon panetta has repeatedly and emphatically outlined the dangers of military action against iran. and joe biden as he said has made fun of the whole thing. it doesn't sound like an open and shut commitment that the u.s. would use military option, general clark. what's your take? >> i think it's an open and shut commitment. i think the president said he'll do whatever it takes. i think he can do it. we know what the military option is. it's been talked about many times. you've seen it on display in iraq and afghanistan. we used a military option in kosovo when i was the commander, the iranians should be under no doubt that this option can be used. it will be effective and it will result in the

they move around to get license. i talked with joe biden is going to be an -- involved very shortly in announcing programs that are going to help teachers help kids of military families better adapt in schools. i think there have been tangible demonstrations by this administration with regard to veterans and that is starting to be recognized. i want to say one thing about veterans. and that is we have seen governor felon -- romney we are going to have the strongest defense every and -- at the same time he's calling for 20% reduction in spending that will affect veteran's programs. at some point, people are going to see the have voodoo of economics of that and that includes veterans. >> [inaudible] i'd like to ask about the reputation of democrats on the -- [inaudible] served thirty years in the making sends [inaudible] tried to pub l democratic leadership counsel to the right on the defense to make them so strong we have now riched the point what the survey showed. i'm wondering about the romney administration how the president [inaudible] showed he's fumbling on defense and they pi
in the military. he is out there for his own agenda. vice-president biden has one son that is patriotic to our country. host: how about a final thought from you in a broad sense about campaign 2012 that foreign policy would play. guest: governor romney is a patriotic american and wants to contribute. i think he is having a problem in the campaign. foreign policy is becoming a bigger issue because of these terrible events in the middle east. both candidates want to sanction china because of the threat of war. i think president obama has the advantage going into the debate. the president's record is very solid. mitt romney has to develop some well considered ideas -- here's what i would do on the big issues. how we can stop iran from becoming a nuclear weapons power. how do we bring peace to the palestinians? that is a debate we should have. it should not be partisan. i am looking for to the debates. host: nicholas burns, former u.s. ambassador and now teaching at the harvard. thank you for joining us this morning. guest: thank you very much. >> tomorrow morning's washington journal, the head of
's out there for his own agenda. like vice president biden, he had a least one on this pastry out of country. i don't think it's it's out for the people's interests. >> host: final word from the caller there. in the campaign role of 2012, what will the role-play? >> guest: i guess that would mean to the motives of governor romney running for president. as a pastry addict american who has to contribute and has a sense of ideas that can contribute. however, i think he's having a problem. foreign policy is becoming a much bigger issue than anybody expected because of these terrible events in the middle east, because both candidates are attacking china and wanted to sanction china because of a threat of war between israel and iran. i think president obama has got the natural advantage going into the debate. the president's record is very solid. he's been a good president on foreign policy and governor romney's challenge now is to get beyond the slow dance in the 119 see in the campaign trail and develop some well considered idea to explain, okay, here's what i i would do differently.
that happened in benghazi, biden said something has gone to happen in the middle east. and also, he went over there in the middle of august. so, does anybody else not see any correlation there to what is going on? about the cover-up? thank you. host: where caller: do see a: they do not tell the truth -- host: where do you see the cover up? guest: they do not tell the truth. they are killing people. diplomats. and also, here they are, covering up everything. and there will not tell the truth that it was a terrorist attack and there are terrorists all around the world. and if people cannot see that, we are not safe. this president has done nothing to keep us safe, except he killed bin laden, big deal, he used bush's people. he has not created any jobs that you can see. there are 23 million americans still without employment. why would anyone want to vote for him again. host: on our line for democrats. caller: good morning. i just want to talk about voter suppression and a voter id, that kind of stuff that is going on. with as a voter suppression. it makes voter id a major issue. and i hear it a
to say, kind of the joe biden way, one for you, one for me? everyone was locked in their dogma? >> in the beginning, not in the beginning of the book but in the beginning of obama coming into office, he really -- there was a sense boehner and obama could work together. >> yes. >> that ended relatively quickly. what happened? >> it did. it ended -- boehner reached out to the president. they had lots of meetings. i described their private meetings in detail. as boehner said, at one of the first meetings, the president was cidrinking iced tea and chewing on an nicorette because of his smoking habit and there's boehner over there having a cigarette and red wine, merlot. in a since, they made some progress, but they did not get there. i chart in thousand of words the exact negotiations, the phone calls. you see something that didn't get fixed. i is an i term shame it didn't get fixed. >> why after this research it is harder today to make deals. you see the history of this, people are able to make deals when there are real people sitting across from each other. what is it about this
gore or joe biden have charitable contributions of $350 per year. i would not think you could argue that mitt romney has gotten p too muchuffy press. i think his interview on "six"the minutes was pretty good. they ask what your idea of leadership was in that as a nice generic question. i need spirit -- i think there needs to be substantive questions as well. host: i want to make sure that the folks see this a -- in "the washington post" last wemple reported thisric -- guest: there is a danger in a candidate talking about the media bias. the media of will turn around and say you are losing. this is a lot of what we have seen in the last couple of weeks. there was an associated press report that said romney is struggling to exert his influence in the poll. you don't want to get across the idea of losing but this is what happens. the media runs with a poll they are taking and they treat the race like it is over. we are in september. that's what i don't like. people should let this election process conclude before they say is so host: over. next up is silver spring, maryland, go ahead.
joe biden paul ryan and the republican party in general. it is well known romney's favorability numbers are lower than the president's many believe romney, mega-rich businessman, who once tied the family dog to the roof of his car, doesn't seem able to connect with a lot of ordinary voters out will but less popular than george w. bush, that's cold. for start i, romney and his campaign have done everything in their power to make americans forget about george w. bush in his eight years as president. romney avoids mentioning the form president's name. bush was nowhere to be seen at the republican convention in tampa. that's because for a lot of americans, bush's presidency brings back bad memories of the war in iraq, afghanistan, and the dismal response to the federal government to hurricane katrina, and the conditions that allowed the financial crisis of 2008 to happen, on and on. it is a long list. a few months ago, a cnn poll found bush is the least popular living ex-president. somehow he still gets better favorable ratings than the republican that wants to be our next president
. >> you quote a former chief of staff to vice-presidents al gore and joe biden. let me read some of his points -- can you elaborate? >> sure. he is not really specifically using this advice for romney or obama, although i have no doubt many of these tips are being passed on to president obama. it is interesting. that was my first short summary of what he has to say. he went into more depth about each one of those things. impressions of the debate are formed very early. in the first half hour. a lot of the reporters will be writing their stories in the first half hour. you need to come out strong. if there is something you want to say, you have to say it right away. you suggest candidates, when they come out to the stage, write down three points they want to make. when you are watching the debates, you see that. talking points in response to any sort of question. the idea of do not debated moderator is do not say, he got more time, i need more time. those things may be true but it doesn't look good. >> are those moments magnified in a nationally televised presidential debate? >> i think
to be drawing for the next four years? politics aside. romney/ryan or four more years of obama/biden? >> romney is much funnier. and a robotic sense, he is great. >> i would said my job aside and prefer to have the country recover. i am hoping for a regime change. it is obviously -- cartoonists are in a position of where what is best for them is not necessarily best for the country. i think is all too important this time. that is why i want mitt romney. >> i agree with steve. from a philosophical point of view as an american, i would like mitt romney to win. as a conservative cartoonist, it is always easier to go after the guy you disagree with. >> in the you have any past people who are your favorites to drop? >> anytime somebody has a reputation for salacious behavior, it makes them rich targets for us. the bill clinton years were -- i got out of the office very early every day. that was back when i had a sick handicapped by the way. >> george w. bush was fun for me. he is great to drop. as the term progressed, i disagree with them on many more things. if you are a conservative and you have a
